We had a deployment to help out a 450 lb. pet pig who could not stand on her own. We rigged her with straps, loaded her onto the glide, and moved her under the tripod for the raise.
Once on her feet with the straps supporting her weight in part, we worked on getting her to move her hind legs, which are what were keeping her from being able to stand on her own. She didn’t seem to be improving after a reasonable amount of time, so after consulting with vets, the owners made the difficult decision to humanely euthanize her.
A deployment is not always a happy ending, but we are glad to have had the opportunity to meet this sweet girl help out where we could.
Our thoughts are with the family.
